Just a quick update here on my proposed idea to swap the stabilizers (and sliders) from the R2 RGB into the 87U…
While I don’t have the R2 RGB on-hand just yet, I’m quite sure that (similar to the NovaTouch mod) you’ll have to file the LEFT CONTROL portion of the plate in order to properly secure the stabilizer housing (from the R2 RGB).
So, I’ve decided to play it safe to avoid imperfections. Instead, I’ve opted to perform the dome swap from the 87U (55g) into the R2 RGB in hopes of achieving that “87U feel.”
Besides, looking back on that idea now only makes me regret considering it in the first place. I would hate to do such a thing to the 87U (referring to filing the plate just to fit a housing).
Does that seem like a total cop-out?
